Like the Umbrella Academy, the new team / family consists of seven members, all six of whom will each be assigned a unique number. First of all, there is Sir Reginald Hargreeve. The character played by Colm Feore has indeed survived the apocalypse. Ben is also in the game. This time he's not # 1, but # 2, his old number having been assigned to Marcus (Justin Cornwell) who is described as a colossus who "exudes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice. ".
Fei, played by Britne Oldford, is number 3 at Sparrow Academy. She is a misanthrope, but still wants to "have a friend". Jake Epstein puts himself in the shoes of Number 4. According to his description, he is a character who has a certain similarity to Diego (David Castaneda), in particular because he bears the marks of the battles in which he participated.
"A romantic and a dreamer"
Genesis Rodriguez plays Sloane or Sparrow # 5. She is described as a "romantic and dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling". She faces family obligations all the time, sometimes limiting her availability. Number 6 is played by Cazzie David. Described as "a loner hidden under a hoodie, whose only friend is Alphonso", the character possesses a frightening growl.
The last member of the family is intriguing to say the least. This is Christopher who is a telekinetic cube. He serves as an Oracle and mediator for the Sparrow Academy. Note that the filming of season 3 of Umbrella Academy should begin next month in Toronto.
And we say hello to new students! (Yes there is a cube).
